This=bad news for the prospects of the Brewers this season. Can I add a "PS" to my letter to Doug Melvin from yesterday? About finding some way to unload Trevor Hoffman? Ughhh, Jon from March can't believe that Jon in May is even typing that. But that's what it's come to, Hoffman is like Mick Jagger around your daughter, he can't be trusted. Honestly, Marco Estrada looked like Cy Young yesterday compared to Trevor Hoffman. Marco Estrada. I mean is this even earth anymore?
Sigh....anyhow that's all I can muster up about the Brewers today, honestly I'd rather watch every episode every aired of Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman back-to-back-to-back than think about the Brewers again today. I'd rather watch every XFL game beginning to end than wonder if the season is over.
So with that I wanted to talk about an article I read in the Journal Sentinel on Sunday. If you haven't checked it out here's a link:
It chronicles Jermichael Finley's of-fseason and how he plans on going from a limitless talent who is a head case to fans and management, to a limitless talent who is a head case for opposing defenses (look at that line baby! My intro to journalism professor would be proud). Seriously if I'm Lovie Smith or Brad Childress reading this I am HORRIFIED of what this kid is going to accomplish this season. You think Brian Urlacher's going to be able to stop him? BWHAHAHA. I've got a better chance of calling the cable company and not getting an automated message. Just this line alone:
"I laid everything on the table," Finley said. "I did it so they can know I want to be a leader coming into 2010 and a Pro Bowler and a Super Bowl champion - I want all of that. I want to be the guy they know can make that happen."
Like if I read between the lines there he's pretty much saying the Packers have already won the Super Bowl twice this season? I think that sums it up. After reading this it wouldn't shock me if Finley has 2,000 yards and 20 TDs this year. Times two.
Not to mention this kid is actually motivating me to be better. If he can follow through on these words he pretty much gives hope to everyone who has ever had the words "if he only applied himself" said about them. Like I want to be a better on-air personality. A better blogger. Hell I might even spell check these things before I post them. Whoa, let's not get carried away. Bonus word: domination.
PS: Sports Illustrated's Peter King has the Packer's #1 in his preseason power rankings. And he's never been wrong about anything. So what if he thought the Bears would be in the Super Bowl last season? Let those among us who haven't had sports predictions go wrong cast the first stone. I'm 25 years old and so far I'm 0-25 in predicting the Wrold Series champion. So when Peter King says the Packers are the best team in the NFL, I have no choice but to believe him.
